It's probably buried on the bottom and does not get enough airflow. An additional fan in the right place may help (short of dry ice - LOL). Sometimes there are also a lot of cables that obstruct the airflow. Check that too. For a test, open the sidepanels and blow air in (with a fan or whatever).

Hmm, so that rules that one out. Did you check that the GPU blower is seated correctly and runs as expected. There are not that many possibilities short of a basic malfunction.

can you take a pic of your case configuration by any chance & stick it up here for us..??

i have seen 8800s lose thermal integrity over time on a few sites, the TIM would need reapplying if this is the case (& the card is dust & cable free)

for a dual slot card 60c idle's are a little high, what are your max load temps..??

How cool is too cool?
I have been experimenting on various homemade cooling systems and ideas. One question I have not been able to find an answer for is, what are the lower limits of cpu function in regards to temperature? 10 degrees C? sub zero degrees C?

So, I was perusing TigerDirect the other day, looking for a really good BBK, found what I wanted and ordered it. However, I know a guy, who knows another guy, that can get me the uber edition of the i7 core for less than TD can. As I was discussing overclocking with him, I brought up water...
